Neat, you win a "why didn't I do it that way in the first place?" :)

Looking at it without all the history of previous attempts, this looks
entirely reasonable, and definitely a step in the right direction.

Although this preserves the existing behaviour, as in of_dma_configure()
we can do better here since we have the original address range to hand.
I think it's worth keeping the ACPI and OF paths in sync for minor
tweaks like this, rather than letting them diverge unnecessarily.

Otherwise, the rest looks OK to me - in principle we could store it as
an exclusive limit such that we could then streamline the min_not_zero()
tests to just min(mask, limit - 1), but that's probably too clever for
its own good.

Robin.
